Khrushchev gave no details in Military Search Pressed for Plane MANILA .S. military planes and ships pressed a hunt between Guam and the Philippines tonight for a chartered airliner which vanished at sea with 107 persons, chiefly American Army men, on a flight to war-torn South Viet Nam. A full 24 hours passed since the four-engine Super Constellation, owned, by the California-based Fly- ing Tiger l.ihe, radioed its last message. This was a routine re- port to Guam from a position 270 miles west of lhat U.S. base in Ihe western Pacific, as it headed for Clark Air Force Base, riorth of Manila. Search craft crisscrossed 75.000 square njiles of the Pacllic fruit- lessly by daylight and were con- tinuing through the night. Weather was excellent and the sea normal.

Tass, the Soviet news agency, said it was "an artificial earth satellite launched with a view to continuing the Soviet program of outer space research." There no announcement whether a man or other living being was aboard. Khrushchev made his statement about "I assure yon I will spare no ef- forts to justify your high confi- dence." Ho assailed the two-party sys- tern of the United Stales and said the Soviet sysiem, under which one candidate runs for any parti- cular scat in the Supreme Soviet, this country's version of a parlia-l nient, is much belter. In the United Slates, Khrush- chev said, they may have two can- didates representing two parlies A there is no real difference. He added that the main differ- ence between the (wo major U.S. iwliiical parlies was that one has an elephant as its symbol and thej other a donkey. j "This dues not represent a big' choice lo American he quipped, (o loud applause. Soviet' parliamentary candi- dates, lie said, are (he choice of the people and have something in common with Ihe people. The Soviet Union's rale of pro- duction is increasing (aster than in (lie United Slates, he went on, al- though he made no claim to ahead.

Referring lo Western pro- by 14-3 million tons or 14 iwsals for an effective control system, he said, "U't will never agree lo this."

He said there arc some signs bill Ihe international atmosphere s improving but "the situation still remains complicated and :cnse." This is so, he continued, be- cause the Western powers hate the idea of giving up their weap- ons. He promised patience in Ihe settlement of the German rutes- :ion but insisted that it "cannot delay endlessly Ihe solution of Ihis important task." Khrushchev made the announce- ment in a completely offhand manner while a scicnlisi was speaking at Ihe meeling in the Kremlin. The scientist, Alexander Yshlin- sky, commented. "We are launch- ing cosmic and Khrush- chcv interrupted from his seat back of the rostrum. "One was launched today al 3 o'clock and it is already in he said. He did not specify whether it was 3 a.m. or 3 p.m. and Sovici sources were unable to say imme- diately. Khrushchev made Ihe announce- ment lo a crowd of about and it brought a quick cheer.

Looking up al his constituents seated in the big modernistic au- ditorium in the Kremlin, Khrush- chev said: ncrcaseri ils unemployment by a nillion to 4.7 million, besides unny partly unemployed.
